Beach Babies Early Learning Hub
Thank you so much to those people who came to the first meeting, we had some very interesting discussions and came up with a list of dates and discussion topics for the next three meetings, one per term for the 2015/16 academinc year.
They are as follows but we would really like suggestions as to other areas that would be useful to talk about, for example at Beach Babies we have lots of experience in outdoor learning and raising independent children. Please let me know if there is any area of interest that you could share with the group and this really is a way of sharing good practice and learning from each other as well as forging links to give us somewhere else to go to for advice.
18th November 7pm Main topic: Working with babies and young toddlers
This will be held at Little Stars Nursery which is at the Buchanon Centre, Capper Rd, Waterbeach, CB25 9LY and although we will be starting the discussion and sharing ideas on working with babies we would like anyone coming to bring up things that they are interested in or have questions about.
2nd March 7pm Main topic: Learning and development journals
This will be held at Beach Babies Nursery, 82 Green End, Landbeach, CB25 9FD. We will have ipads for you to try out the system we use but would really like anyone else to bring an example of what they do and any assessment tools or schedules that they use.
18th May 7pm Main topic: Speech and Language development
Location to be confirmed. We will look at usual development and when and how to seek help as well as strategies to use in settings, we will also talk about the challenges of helping EAL or bilingual children as they develop.
